of these signatures say the same thing. they both belong to treasury secretary tim geithner, who by virtue of being treasury secretary is also the guy who gets to sign our money. when mr. geithner became treasury secretary, he changed his signature. he changed it from the rather lovely loop de loops on the left to the fifth grader's cursive timothy f. geithner you see on the right. here he is explaining why. >> i think on the dollar bill i had to write something that people could read my name. i didn't try for elegance. i just tried for elegance. >> because mrs. quigley, the first grade writing teach worry have given me an "f" on that. >> i took third grade in new delhi, india. >> whether it is foreign penmanship instruction or something weirder, tim geithner's changed signature never got nearly the attention that his successor's signature received. all of the media got fixated on a signature that is loopier than tim geithner's original signature. this is jack lew. all signs point to president obama say i knowing him to replace tim geithner. and if he is nominated and confirmed, that will mean that

plans to announce jack lew to replace tim geithner. the president is expected to do that tomorrow. and hilda solis announced she will resign, while attorney general eric holder announced he will stay on for a second term. jay carney was asked this question about jack lew. >> working on a signature. >> the treasury secretary's signature, you see, appears on all reserve notes, dollar bills during his tenure. here is jack lew's signature, it really is. and here is what jack lew's signature would look like on a dollar bill. not everybody can have the style of john hancock. it was once said that the president had the handwriting that neared that of an illiterate. and of course, there is this, that signature? it may be more legible than jack lew, tim geithner's signature became the very neat, very legible cursive in the right-hand corner. tim geithner said he was forced to change his signature before it was fit to print. richard wolfe, when i was chief of staff at the senate finance committee, we of course had to confirm treasury secretary. and i had when i was all done -- this thing wa
to the -- presenting to the nation his nominee to be his next treasury secretary tim geithner is finally leaving and the president turned to his former budget chief, now chief of staff soon to be treasury secretary, jack lew. president obama saying too bad to see tim go but we've got a good guy coming in. >> obama: i understand tim is ready for a break. obviously we're sad to see him go. but i cannot think of a better person to continue tim's work at treasury than jack lew. >> bill: and the president said jack's my buddy. good having him around here but higher duty calls. >> obama: i don't want to see him go because it's working out really well for me to have him here in the white house but my loss will be the nation's gain. >> bill: i lost the nation's gain. -- my loss, the nation's gain. one interesting thing this is what's been getting most of the talk about yesterday's nomination is not necessarily what -- how good a job jack lew will do as treasury secretary. he's a very talented guy. i think he will be a wonderful treasury secretary. and just the right person to have at the president's sid
of staff jack lew of management and budget is considered to be tim geithner's most likely successor and that's deputy national security adviser denis mcdonough. anything could change, but those could be the most likely picks. other members of the administration suggest they're heading for the exits and you would assume the stuff starts ranking up in the next week or so. lisa jackson announced her departure at the end of january and rebecca blank who took over in june after secretary bryson went on medical leave. also expected to leave ray lahood and ken salazar and steven chu. likely with appointments of lew and mcdonough you'll hear more voices demanding more diversity in that cabinet, if you will. how does the president end up solving that problem and create a cabinet that, "looks like america." >>> all right, picking a fight over the president's pentagon pick. one thing the left and the right can agree on. chuck hagel may have an uphill battle in the senate. next, we'll get the view from both sides. former romney campaign adviser dan seymour and dan clemens will be here for a deb
. >>gretchen: quick headlines. tim geithner getting ready to cash out. now we know who will replace him as treasury secretary. fox news confirming president obama is choosing jack lew. casey anthony lawyers will appeal today. anthony was found guilty of lying to detectives. >>steve: you might have said you liked it when you got it, but what do you do with all those christmas presents if you didn't really like them and don't really need them? don't feel bad because roughly 10% to 15 partly cloudy of all christmas gifts are taken back or exchanged. that adds up to nearly $88 billion worth of things. how can you turn your unwanted gifts into cash? we are joined by an expert, sandra smith. good morning to you. >> good morning. >>steve: for one reason or another we get stuff for christmas maybe we don't need. we've got four of those already. you've got a way you can make some money. >> you can open a closet and dedicate it to all those unwanted christmas gifts and use them throughout the year. maybe you get candles and soaps you may not want. however you may be going to a dinner party later
that, if you remember in the discussions about the fiscal cliff when tim geithner delivers to the republicans the initial offer they don't come back with a counteroffer that says if you want those revenues we want entitlement cuts. they then say to the administration "we want you to propose entitlement cuts so we can turn around and say look you proposed entitlement cuts." so i don't know which it is. i know that in the long run all the economists are going to agree what the root of the challenge. is it's the aging of the the population, rising health care costs and we don't have the tax revenue to cover that. it's not based on excessive spending on food stamps. it's not based on discretionary spending. that is not what the problem is. >> rose: david? >> i think it's significant if republicans have decided they want this next round to be about entitlements rather than spending. because there is no solution in discretionary spending. >> rose: exactly. >> there's not enough money there. >> rose: everything knows that, don't they? i'm surprised everybody doesn't accept that id
they want to make will be on the debt ceiling. and ironically, i think if as tim geithner did, the secretary of the treasury, float this idea of abolishing the law that requires a congressional vote, that sort of the ultimate threat that the president has. whether he can get that through or not. but that's the ultimate nightmare for the tea party. >> quickly both of you gentlemen, i want your take on the filibuster reform that is pending. there is a lot of commentary being given in the senate about what should be done. would this make it a toxic atmosphere, eugene, if harry reid goes for the full ball of wax and really smokes them out the way they have been filibustering and changes the rule? what does that do to debt ceiling negotiations, if anything? >> well, i think it probably exacerbates the tensions and the bad feelings in the senate, and where the feelings are not that bad right now. i don't know that he will try to push forward on that. >> what than, howard? >> i think he might try it. i think he is being pushed to try it by liberal constituencies who might see that as a payback for
of tim geithner. mr. lew is a government lifer. and john kerry well to the left of hillary clinton who was also recorded as rather hawkish as a senator. now hilda solis is resigning. not sure what that means, but as the president's moving further to the left in his second term. not a centrist. let's bring back karen finney, columnist for the hill. guy benson, and mark simone. guy, i think these appointments, all three of them, particularly, particularly hagel at defense, show a move to the left. what's your take? >> sure, i mean, of course they do, the president's a lefty, that's who he is. and now that he never has to face voters again, i think we'll see his administration drift even further to the left. i do see the lew appointment at least as an opportunity for republicans to highlight the fact that we have not had a federal budget in almost four years. and it is 100% the fault of democrats. a lot of americans don't know that. at least give guys like that a chance to really beat that drum. and one other thing, larry, i'm interested to see the labor department pick with solis on her
secretary. >>> also, treasury secretary tim geithner planning to leave later this month, sometime around the inauguration. >>> seven minutes past the hour. with heavy little hearts and under very heavy guard, classes have resumed for students at sandy hook elementary school. hit the books for the first time since the massacre three times. they were held in a school in nearby connecticut made to look like their old school. students were anxious to resume study. >> we took the bus. had the normal routine, getting them breakfast, getting backpacks packed and then we went out and waited for the bus. as soon as the bus came, they didn't look back. bye, guys. waved and ran on the bus. >> everybody worked so hard to make this as normal as possible for the kids. teachers and school administrators tried to make it as normal as possible. kids cubbies and desks moved intact. tried to recreate some of the rooms for them as well. just such an amazing effort. i wish them all well. >> there is word that former congresswoman gaby gifford may visit the newtown families today. the lieutenant governor said
will be replaced by who knows. tim geithner is out. he'll be replaced by a guy, jack lew, the guy who, if you've been watching the tv over the last day or so, jack lew is the guy who signs his name with what surely looks like a slinky. >>brian: front page "where are the women?" they take a picture and talk about the cabinet of the administration. all the women are being replaced by men. white men too on top of that. let me show you a picture in "the new york times." all we see is valerie jar rhett's leg -- valerie jarrett's leg. >>steve: on december 29 that is the pr-z meeting with ten guys and they're talking about the fiscal cliff. >>brian: could they back up a little. >>gretchen: this is a picture they released the day after, i believe. and you can see valerie jarrett front and center facing the president. then there are two other women who are in the photos. was it a reaction to that original picture? brian, you bring up a good point that there are no minorities -- there's one, i think, in that original picture. it is an interesting discussion because there was so much made in this last p
considered failures. tim geithner's tenure has been controversial but i think broadly speaking what he did to write the financial system will be considered a tremendous achievement in the annals of economic policy-making. but again, they are in something of a rut, i think, in their economic policy-making at this point, and particularly in their approach to dealing with republicans. a lot of that, i'd say frankly the bulk of that blame falls on the house republicans and john boehner. but it's nevertheless a case that they just put somebody into the treasury department who they intend to have lead a lot of their budget battles who john boehner at this point essentially refuses to work with. during the 2011 negotiations, they said boehner and the republicans said we just don't want to deal with lew anymore. we don't feel we can get him to say yes to us. now, to some degree that might be because lew is reflecting the will of the president, but i just think there's a kind of a siege mentality a little bit at the white house that's showing up in their appointments, which is understandable, but i
